User Summary

Performs brute force password auditing against Joomla web CMS installations.

This script initially reads the session cookie and parses the security token to perfom the brute force password auditing. It uses the unpwdb and brute libraries to perform password guessing. Any successful guesses are stored using the credentials library.

Joomla's default uri and form names:

  • Default uri:/administrator/index.php
  • Default uservar: username
  • Default passvar: passwd

Script Arguments

http-joomla-brute.uservar

sets the http-variable name that holds the username used to authenticate. Default: username

http-joomla-brute.threads

sets the number of threads. Default: 3

Other useful arguments when using this script are:

  • http.useragent = String - User Agent used in HTTP requests
  • brute.firstonly = Boolean - Stop attack when the first credentials are found
  • brute.mode = user/creds/pass - Username password iterator
  • passdb = String - Path to password list
  • userdb = String - Path to user list
